An alleged paedophile appeared in court accused of skipping bail.

Martyn Rodger, 25, was due before Oxford Crown Court at the start of June. When he failed to turn up, a warrant was issued for his arrest.

On Friday, Judge Michael Gledhill QC heard the Witney man had been arrested at his home in Eastfield Road.

The judge remanded him in custody for a plea hearing on July 9.
